National Conference leader Farooq Abdullah has said that he hopes that article-370 in Jammu and Kashmir will be restored with the help of China.
The former chief minister of erstwhile state held the Centre’s decision to abrogate article 370 responsible for the Chinese aggression at the Line of Actual Control (LAC) in Ladakh.
Farooq Abdullah said that China “never accepted” the Abrogation of Article 370, and hoped that it will be restored with China’s support, India Today reported.
“Whatever they are doing at LAC in Ladakh all because of the abrogation of Article 370, which they never accepted. I am hopeful that with their support, Article 370 will be restored in J-K,” Farooq Abdullah said.
“I never invited the Chinese President, it was [PM] Modi who not only invited him but did jhoola sawari with him. He [PM Modi] even took him to Chennai and had food with him,” Farooq Abdullah said.
Further speaking on the Centre’s decision on Jammu and Kashmir, Farooq Abdullah said that “what the government had done on 5 August [in 2019] was unacceptable”.
Farooq Abdullah further said that he was not even allowed to speak on the problems of Jammu and Kashmir in Parliament.
